About the business school selector?

by eric68508 » Thu Jul 09, 2009 1:34 pm
Excuse me, I have some question about the software.

It ask us to input "Highest Level of Education", but do not ask for the GPA in master degree. So, is it the committe only consider the GPA in undergraduate?

In fact, whether the universities consider GPA in master degree is very important for me. When I input the GPA of my master degree in the field for undergraude GPA, I see many top universities. However, when I input my real undergradue GPA, I see "This applicant would not be competitive at the top 25 programs."

Also, I got my undergraduate degree outside US, but I study my master degree in US. Is it that the american university more interest in the GPA I get in US?

Thank you very much..

Hi E,
Thanks for your question. First of all, the school selector tool is more of directional guidance of schools you might be competitive for admissions.

AdCom will definitely look at grad school GPA, however they place more preference toward your undergrad GPA.

So, if my undergraduae GPA is 2.3 and graduate GPA is 3.7.
Then, assume other criteria of us are the same, am I competitive among those has GPA 3.0 in undergraude?
